    "Unemployed Need Not Apply", that is the mantra going around with some employers, hoping to snag the best candidates for their own employees. Politicians, hoping to combat such practices are toying with the idea of making a law to prohibit the practice, but that would likely be futile attempt for the employers would simply stop announcing it , leaving the policy in tact.

    What would be the answer for a very employable potential grade A loyal candidate do in circumstances such as that? Why not go to an interview, tell them you are presently unemployed but you are eager to work for the company and willing to volunteer your services to demonstrate your sklls and value as a company man?

    Talk about standing out from the bunch! Who would do that? Some one desperate for a job and confident he could demonstrate to company officials that he is worth the perceived risk that they feared. My bet is he would get that job before going on to hire anyone else.

    Think outside the box. These times require it.

    The right wing pretends that the unemployed are lazy and do not want to work. They did this during the Great Depression also.

    The widespread opposition on the Right to extending unemployment benefits, for starters.

    The Right's widespread support for employers who want to exclude the unemployed from applying for jobs.

    No...we just choose to get government off the backs of business so there will be no need for unemployment compensation and open up the gates so they can get back to producing, and then hiring.

    You really aren't any good at this are you?

    And I asked for a link, and I got a cheap substitute. *YOU*

    I'm not quite sure how I feel about extending unemployment benefits for unlimited time frames during times of debt. Something has to be done to push our law makers to drop some the laws that prohibit the businesses from hiring. Everyone is at a standstill waiting for the other to make a move.

    People are not taking jobs below their grade to get by, pushing the gov't to issue more checks and resulting in a lower tax base. We haven't had such a dire situation in a long time. Sacrificing may have to be the answer. I don't want to see the people starve, but just when are where do we stop?

    Is it just the right who fails to employ the unemployed? That has to stop!

    While unemployment benefits are still being given, take that chance and volunteer somewhere and get noticed by the powers the hire. Perhaps a hokey idea, but it may work somewhere.

    I'd bet this is a bullshit story to get lawyers and politicans on the left involved to create new laws to sue companies.

    There is no logical reason for some company to openly say they won't hire someone because of being unemployed. It opens up lawsuits, etc.

    This story is bullshit and is another angle socialists are going to use to undermine the US economy with laws passed to sue companies on a whim.

    Post the opposition.

    None of that phoney shit you always attempt with its unemployment when it was something else in the bill.
